problems that get thrust upon them as a consequence of diminished tax bases and the consequence of housing, the significant portion of the public and their states that are in most need. we're committed to having a third phase of the so-called big deal on the budget. we're of the view that just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop to get our economy in great shape and move toward a balanced bump started off with three phases. started with president bush's actions, the first president bush, in terms of taxation, before president clinton took office. then the actions the president took in '94 and then in '97. well, we think there's a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt, the gdp, our deficit to gdp, down around 3%, which is the basis of which all economists left, right, center, agree, are the areas which we really can begin to grow as a country. and also my grandfather used to say, with the grace of god and good will of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail between now and the time we deal with th

of state services like health and welfare, a limit on property taxes, plus republican legislators' refusal to raise taxes created a dilemma in the world's ninth largest economy. with budget cuts coming like clock work, the state's college and university systems declined in offerings and in reputation. schools suffered cutbacks in personnel and programs. services for the poor were trimmed by $15 billion since 2008. state workers were furloughed. then in 2010, promising to use his long honed political skills to fix the state, jerry browne, a democrat, was elected governor. 30 years after he held the job in the '70s. he faced a $26 billion deficit and started making more cuts and changes like transferring inmates from the state's overcrowded prisons to county jails and closing down local redevelopment agencies using the money for the state budget. meanwhile, the economy started to improve in fits and starts bringing in more tax revenue. but it all wasn't enough. brown proposed to california voters a measure to raise income taxes on the wealthy and sales taxes for everybody. to the feun of $5.

on your debt. well we have 2 1/2 trillion dollars coming into the treasury every year in tax revenue. we can use that tax revenue to pay the interest on our debt. therefore, we will not default. all this talk about being a deadbeat nation, that belies the fact that we have never, and will never default on our obligations. the obligation being to pay the interest on the debt. we're not a deadbeat nation and we're not going to default, period. yes. period. martha: comes down to the big question whether or not you will cut spending in order to not default on your debt. and that brings us to a larger question or one of the larger questions, which is whether or not we will be downgraded if we don't become more responsible with our spending? >> interesting you should raise that issue, martha, because 45 minutes ago, fitch, the ratings agency said, if we have another delay in raising this debt ceilingsing, if we have this political standoff again just like we had in 2011, fitch says we may be downgraded. his name is david reilly. he is managing director at fitch and he said if it is just like 2
give a tax credit to any one who would turn in what lawmakers are calling an assault weapon and also another measure aimed at creating the overall bigger picture of mass violence. >> at the news conference the president accused republicans of trying to collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the u.s. economy. they are demanding more spending cuts before they agree to raise the nation's debt ceiling. the debt ceiling is announcing the amount of money the states can borrow. today the president responded to some republicans who say they are willing to shut down the government if the president doesn't back down. ultimately congress makes decisions about whether or not we spend money and keep the government open. if they decide they want to shut down the government in order to get their way they have the votes in the house of representatives to do that. i think that would be a mistake. >> john boehner responded the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending statement. wendell, a government shut down, is that something that really mig

leaving the state of california and there are better ways to raise revenue. one is by broadening our tax base by encouraging businesses to come to the state of california and expand here. that will solve our problems of increasing revenue. melissa: you talk about that the way you would encourage businesses to come would be to lower their tax rate. so, you know, it is quite the opposite of raising it. do you think you could ever get that done in california's current climate? >> not in our current climate we are not going to get it done. we need to cut government regulations. we need to give businesses incentives to be here. that in turn would bring revenue. melissa: you know it does not work for me right now, i will have to make some changes. i ventured prosperity in that. races on income over $1 million. it used to be 10.3%. for him, that is $1.8 million. he made $60 million. that tax is making a big difference for him. nebraska governor has talked about eliminating the personal income tax and corporate income tax. do you think that those kinds of states will starts stealing valuable inc

and the republicans in formulating that tax reduction legislation led to a budget surplus is the touchstone for success in working with the opposing parties to fulfill a president legislative agenda. clinton insightfully appointed erskine bowles to represent him in negotiations with congress. bulls great talent for bargaining was important in reaching the president's legislative agenda. but this is followed by the same house of representatives voting to an each bill clinton, obviously an extreme example, but the age-old conflict between congress and the executive branch of government and get bill clinton was lifted, only seven were elected presidents who were successful. there are lessons to be learned from the clinton's second term that might offer guidance to obama where he reelect me. some of the president to face hostility from congress feel the majority of their own party included washington, jefferson, monroe, grant, theodore roosevelt, johnson and bush. andrew jackson was censured by the congress controlled by democratic party. he never forgave. franklin roosevelt had a constant batt

no more tax increases, none. well that's starting from a position of not negotiating. because you can't have entitlement changes without more tax changes. >> rose: yeah. let me turn to gun control watch. dow expect vice president bidetone suggest to the president tomorrow, majer? >> well, several things, charlie. i think he's going to say what the president has already said. he wants to reinstate the assault weapons ban, first put into law in 1994, set on a ten year sunset, was not renewed when it expired. a if you ban on the large capacity ammunition clips, those magazines that hold more than ten bullets, sometimes up to a hundred. and some type of beefing up of the mental health and criminal background check system, currently it applies only to federally licensed firearms dealers. some gun shows don't have all those dealers there and private sales aren't covered. that is a very difficult thing to do from a gun registry and absolute data sealed off sort of way to approach that. the nra has some very strong objections and members of congress might be skeptical rather to a complete req
, pay taxes, do all the other things. we transferred one of our cars to one of our sons here recently. we had to go through the motor vehicle department transfer, whatever. why somebody should be able to go into a gun show and buy any kind of a thing without any kind of the background check you might have otherwise, at least -- i -- at least not an enforceable one, i can't understand that. i really can't. i think we should have stricter background checks. i think they should be real ones. if you have the restraining orders on you, other things, we ought to be able to do that. i realize every state's different. vermont has virtually no gun laws. you can carry loaded concealed weapon in vermont this afternoon if you were there with no permit. we also have one of the lowest crime rates in the country but not because of that. we are as a society we are very law-abiding, but would that stop somebody who is mentally unhinged from going out and using a gun, knife, or anything else to kill people? no. the president's right when he says there are a whole lot of factors involved. i'm anxious to
look at president clinton's second term he made progress on deficits and ronald reagan, tax reform. >> even if they're dealing with other problems. >> and we have been fortunate to want to continue that but you if look, it's not like we're roaming around the west wing looking for things to do. right now in front of congress and the country you have the need to reduce the deficit and continue to grow the economy, energy and climate change, immigration. gun safety. things are stacked up. and so i think that that is going to provide the sort of focus and energy you need and i think his intention is to run through the tape all the way through. >> gun safety has jumped to the top of the president's agenda since newtown and this week the president promised that the weight of his office behind these proposals but we're seeing a lot of resistance from democrats and want to show some of the reaction. senator max baucus "before passing new laws we need a thoughtful debate that respects responsible law abiding gun owners in montana instead of one side fits all directives from washington. sena
. to do it he will have to raise taxes. that will be one of the number one issues on his agenda to raise taxes way beyond where we have been ever since the reagan era. >> juan, how can that be? he has to see the spending problem that we are in. what do you think the thought process is about that since has done some cuts but not enough to make a difference. what do you think his thoughts are on it? >> when you think of some of the positions of debt reduction president obama has been slow to the table in part because he doesn't see republicans as a worthy partner for the steps that have a strong political fallout. people will punish you for people cutting the entitlement programs people punish you at the polls rhetorically. one of steve's great heros congressman ryan of wisconsin took some of that risk and saw the kind of pounding that you take for saying, yes, i would make strong cuts when it comes to something like medicare. i think president obama has been reluctant to join in that junk without knowing that in fact speaker boehner republican leader in the senate mitch mcconnell would be
's instant opposition is not about raising taxes on the wealthy, like last year. nor is it about proposing to raise the tax cuts. this time the issue is gun safety, including universal background checks supported by nearly nine out of ten americans. the president, once again, is taking his message to the people. as did he with _#$40. >> i promise you the american people, your voices, made a difference on this debate zoosh as he did with _#my2k. >> if there's one thing that i have learned, when the american people speak loudly enough, lo and behold, congress listens. >> yesterday the white house launched _#now is the time. >> this will not happen unless the american people demand it. >> the president has a new website explaining the proposed laws. he penned an op ed in the connecticut post today, and he is planning to hit the road to sell his plan with speeches around the country. as the white house tries to engage the public, senate majority leader harry reid will try to engage the senate. in a statement yesterday reid wrote "i am committed to insuring that the senate will consider legisla
